Your privacy is important to the National STD Curriculum. The National STD Curriculum is a free, educational Web site from the UW STD Prevention and Training Center and the University of Washington; this project is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The following sections summarize and disclose the information gathering and dissemination practices for our Web site.
Privacy and the Feedback Survey
The National STD Curriculum Web site contains an optional, self-administered, online feedback survey. On our site, the survey is located in the Feedback header. The survey includes questions regarding the user’s geographic location, their employment, and specific feedback regarding the National STD Curriculum Web site. The purpose of this feedback survey is to help us better understand the type and location of medical providers who are using the site and to evaluate comments from our users to improve our site. In this survey, we do not collect personally identifiable information.
Systems Logs for Web Site
System logs record information about the webpages served, including the URL of search engine used and text string, the browser identification, and the Web pages viewed. In addition, host information (either domain name or Internet Protocol address) can be accessed. The Internet Protocol address, however, does not identify you personally, but rather identifies the location you are computing from. We do collect IP addresses from those visiting our Web site to help diagnose problems with our server and to optimize the performance of our site. The information regarding the specific Internet Protocol address of the user will not be shared and will not be used to send any advertisements. With respect to Ad Servers, we do not have any relationship with any Ad Servers, nor do we intend to engage in any such relationships.
Registration information can include name, email address, mailing address, day and night phone number, education level, and income range. We use this information to contact users about services, courses, or training which they have purchased, requested information, or expressed interest. We do not sell or make available this information for any other reason or to any other party from which the user does not wish to have contact.

A profile is stored information that we keep on individual users that details their viewing preferences. This information is not tied to users' personally identifiable information.

Like most standard Web site servers we use log files.

IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.
